Santa Suits Sold Out? You Can Wear a DIY Santa Claus Outfit Instead

Get Creative This Holiday Season by Dressing Up as a Formal Santa

The holiday season is upon us once again, and with it comes the festive quest to embody the jolly man in red – Santa Claus himself. But what happens when the search for the perfect Santa suit ends in vain, with shelves picked clean and options sold out? This Christmas, rather than navigating the all-too-familiar seasonal shortage, why not craft your own narrative by donning a DIY Santa outfit with a sartorial twist?

At Tuxedo Uomo, we believe in the power of formal menswear to transform the everyday into the extraordinary. And what could be more extraordinary than turning into Santa Claus? Through a curated selection of precision-crafted suits, we offer a pathway to not just dressing as Santa but doing so with unmatched elegance and style. This year, let’s redefine what it means to dress like Santa by elevating your holiday attire to a level of class that only a formal ensemble can provide. End your search for Santa’s suit and step into a Christmas narrative woven with sophistication, comfort, and a dash of festive flair, exclusively with Tuxedo Uomo.

Which color suit or tux would Santa wear? Probably red

When picturing the iconic image of Santa Claus, one can hardly separate the merry figure from his renowned red garb. This festive hue has not only come to signify the warmth and cheer of the holiday season but also stands as the hallmark of Santa’s inimitable style. If the man of the hour were to trade his cozy red coat for something a touch more debonair, the choice would invariably be a red suit or tuxedo – a nod to tradition with a modern twist.

In the realm of formal menswear, color plays a pivotal role in setting the tone. For Santa, a radiant red suit crafted from the finest fabric promises to keep the Christmas spirit alive while delivering a message of timeless sophistication. It’s about selecting a shade that strikes the right chord; a rich, deeper red that whispers elegance during holiday soirees, or perhaps a brighter cherry red that sings of celebration and joy.

As we embrace the holiday season, let us seek out a suit that embodies the festive vibes—soft to the touch, eye-catching in a crowd, and brimming with Christmas cheer. Whether you’re leaning towards a lush velvet smoking jacket or a sleek, satin-lined tuxedo, choosing red is more than just a sartorial decision. It is a commitment to standing out, to embodying Santa’s vitality, and to being the life and soul of the Yuletide festivities. Tuxedo Uomo stands ready to adorn you in a fabric worthy of Kris Kringle himself, making sure you look the part while spreading joy and laughter all Christmas long.

Coca Cola Company

How did red become Santa’s color? You should thank Coca-Cola.

The story of how Santa Claus came to don his signature scarlet ensemble is steeped in twentieth-century lore and shaped by none other than the cultural influence of the Coca-Cola Company. Prior to Coke’s intervention, Santa’s attire was subject to an artist’s whimsy, depicted in a myriad cluster of colors including green, blue, and even tan. However, it was the celebrated advertisements by artist Haddon Sundblom, commissioned by Coca-Cola in the 1930s, that cemented red as the undisputed shade of Santa’s suit.

Sundblom’s portrayal showcased a rosy-cheeked, jovial Santa, clad in a bright red suit lined with white fur, a vision perfectly in sync with Coca-Cola’s brand colors of red and white. These images were etched into the public consciousness, intertwining the joy of Christmas with the refreshing allure of a Coke. What was once a marketing campaign evolved into a global iconography, influencing our collective imagination and the Christmas aesthetic.

This transformative branding exercise also transcended into how we perceive formal attire for Christmas celebrations. A red suit now echoes the same festive sentiment, capturing the Christmas spirit and the warm, inviting ambiance that the holiday heralds. In a full circle moment, this color not only symbolizes the merriment of Santa Claus himself but also stands as a totem of formal Christmas gatherings, courtesy of the craftsmanship at Tuxedo Uomo—where tradition meets luxury and comfort in every stitch.

Make sure the suit you’re wearing is breathable, cause the beard is warm enough!

When it comes to embodying the look of Santa Claus with a touch of class, comfort should never take a back seat to style. Even Santa himself would tell you that his duties require a suit that allows him to move with ease, warmth where needed, and breathability where comfort dictates. For those aspiring to take on the jolly mantle, selecting the right fabric for your suit is key. It’s essential to choose a material that facilitates a merry round of carols just as well as a hearty holiday feast.

The modern Santa suit should be constructed from a breathable fabric that manages to keep you cool during those bustling Christmas activities, yet sturdy enough to endure the winter chill. A fine wool blend serves as an ideal choice for the trousers and jacket, affording much-needed ventilation while remaining elegantly structured. As for the legendary beard, endeavor to secure one that is plush and insulating, so it cradles your chin with the tenderness of freshly fallen snow, while exuding the warmth expected from Saint Nicholas himself.

At Tuxedo Uomo, each suit is a harmonious marriage of form and functionality, promising a breathable fit that moves with the grace of falling snowflakes and retains a snug comfort akin to the embrace of a Christmas morning. Paired with a luxurious beard that serves both form and function, your Santa expression will be as authentic as it is formal, befitting of any holiday gathering or night spent by a crackling fire.

Know your fit. Are you a slim or regular fit? This Santa can be fit.

The true magic of Santa’s suit isn’t just in its festive color or the joy it inspires but in the way it fits as if tailored by the elves themselves. The key to any impressive formal attire, especially one that harbors the responsibility of Christmas cheer, is its fit. Whether you’re channeling a classic Saint Nick silhouette or a svelte, modern Santa, Tuxedo Uomo offers the bespoke tailoring that ensures your suit hugs all the right corners and falls just right.

For the gentlemen preferring a contoured look, a slim-fit suit is the weapon of choice. It provides a streamlined profile that exudes sophistication while still allowing ample movement to laugh heartily and distribute gifts with gusto. The regular or classic fit, on the other hand, caters to a more traditional sensibility, providing comfort without sacrificing an ounce of the Christmas spirit or the formality of the occasion.

This holiday season, take a moment to consider what style captures your inner Santa. Is it the sleek lines of a slim-fit tuxedo that will have you sleighing the fashion game, or the comfortable embrace of a regular fit that says, ‘ho-ho-ho’ in the utmost of style? Tuxedo Uomo’s fitting experts are your guide to a ‘Santa fit’ that looks less ‘ho-hum’ and more ‘ho-ho-wow’. Pick the fit that suits you best, and let us tailor your formal wear to embody the spirit and charm of jolly old Saint Nick, with the extraordinary fit deserving of Christmas’s leading man.

You can get away with not wearing a necktie. But a bow tie would be cute.

When modernizing Santa’s sartorial choices, one finds that certain elements can be playfully omitted or reinvented. Take, for instance, the necktie—often seen as a cornerstone of formal attire. While Santa is seldom depicted with such an accessory, embracing a no-necktie look aligns perfectly with a more relaxed yet sophisticated image. It speaks to a Santa that’s approachable, one who’s ready to join in on a Christmas carol or share a plate of cookies without the fuss of formalities.

However, for those who desire a touch of whimsical elegance, consider the bow tie. A velvety red bow tie with a burst of subtle patterns can serve as a captivating focal point, adding a delightful twist to the ensemble. Think of it as the cherry atop the proverbial Christmas pudding. This dapper addition winks at tradition while injecting a refined, cheeky charm to Santa’s upgraded getup.

Tuxedo Uomo embraces this playful versatility, offering a selection of bow ties that range from the classically understated to the merrily audacious. Whether you opt for the simplicity of going tie-less or the jubilant flourish of a bow tie, your Santa suit from Tuxedo Uomo will be every bit as heartwarming and photogenic as the season it celebrates. The look will be uniquely yours, embodying both the majesty of Christmas gala affairs and the heartfelt warmth of cozy family gatherings.

As always, over-accessorizing is not recommended.

In the world of fashion, particularly for an iconic figure like Santa, less is often more. The gravitas of Santa’s presence is in his simplicity and the universal love he represents, not in an overabundance of trinkets or garlands. While a few well-chosen accessories can complement the outfit and add a sparkle of holiday spirit, restraint is imperative to avoid a cluttered and confusing appearance.

For Santa’s modern formal ensemble, accessorizing with purpose and poise is key. A beautifully crafted belt, not too wide, in glossy black or a subtle shade of gold, can provide a tasteful contrast to a red suit, pulling the ensemble together while also offering practicality. One might also consider a classic timepiece—a gold pocket watch maybe, which serves as a nostalgic nod to timeless elegance and the importance of punctuality on Christmas Eve.

Tuxedo Uomo’s curated selection ensures that each accessory plays its part to perfection without overwhelming Santa’s noble visage. The perfect pair of black boots polished to a shine, a simple yet luxurious white glove set, or perhaps a single, exquisite pin to secure the fur-lined cloak[ are all understated yet distinct touches]. They honor the simplicity of Santa’s ethos while adding convenience and a sprinkle of sophistication to the outfit. Following the creed of ‘less is more,’ a Santa suited by Tuxedo Uomo will be a figure of yuletide elegance—regal yet welcoming, never upstaged by an excess of adornment.

You can wear gloves to enhance your Santa look. White colored gloves are recommended.

Santa Claus's white glove

Gloves are not merely an accessory; they are a statement—a whisper of elegance from days gone by. For Santa Claus, donning a pair of white gloves transcends mere aesthetics; it harks back to a time of refinement and consideration for subtleties. Striking white gloves beckon to the purity of winter’s snow and the promise of a fresh, untouched canvas upon which the joy of Christmas can be painted.

Tuxedo Uomo suggests a pair of white gloves as the finishing touch to your Santa ensemble. They should be snug yet comfortable, sheathing each finger in a cocoon of luxury that allows for the dexterity needed to distribute gifts and warmly greet each believer. The white of the gloves complements the fur trimmings of Santa’s traditional suit, creating an image that resonates with classic imagery, yet feels contemporary in its execution.

The use of gloves also has a practical aspect—it keeps Santa’s hands warm in the frosty winter air and adds a layer of mystique, shrouding the hands that tirelessly wrap and deliver presents around the world. Whether it’s shaking hands, waving from a float in a Christmas parade, or simply resting on the lap of a jovial Santa, the gloves serve as a pristine punctuation to the entire outfit. They communicate Santa’s readiness to engage in the festivities while upholding the decorum of his esteemed position.

Eye-glasses may be a thing of the past; still it can help your Santa look.

In an era where corrective eyewear has largely given way to contact lenses and laser surgeries, glasses might seem like a relic of yesteryear. However, in the case of Santa Claus, a pair of spectacles is not just about vision; they are about perception. Glasses can magnify the twinkle in Santa’s eyes, reflecting not just the Christmas lights but the light of wonder and belief that he carries.

Tuxedo Uomo advocates for the inclusion of eye-glasses to your Santa repertoire—not for the sake of necessity, but for the charm they add. Imagine a pair of round, wire-rimmed glasses resting comfortably on the bridge of Santa’s nose, framing the eyes that have witnessed centuries of Christmas joy. These glasses do not obscure, but rather, they enhance the kindly and wise visage of the man in red.

Serving both as a nod to nostalgia and a functional accessory, glasses help to solidify Santa’s persona as the ageless bearer of Yuletide glee. The choice of frame, be it gold, silver, or even a playful red, can be tailored to match the rest of your outfit. They offer both a vintage charm and a clear view of the merry faces awaiting Santa’s stories and gifts.

Tuxedo Uomo has the outfit that would turn you into a sexy Santa.

The term ‘sexy’ might not be the traditional adjective attributed to jolly ol’ Saint Nick, but a pinch of suave appeal has never hurt any icon. Tuxedo Uomo breathes new vitality into Santa’s classic attire, crafting a look that’s as enchanting as it is empowering. It’s about owning the room the moment you glide down the chimney—or, more traditionally, through the front door.
